I seem to have lost the center line cross hairs in Illustrator CS6.
I draw some shapes, then go to outline mode and the center lines are now missing. They used to work. Still have them in CS5.
Here are a couple of images that show what I mean.
Here in 5 you can see the center points in each shape
Here is a similar picture from 6 with the center points missing.
The center points do show up if I put my cursor over the shape.
Just go to menu 'View' and click on the Show Edges. And in Window>Attributes make sure the show center button is on. Hope this will make your issue solved.
Hi everybody, I think in new version, Adobe have moved center point to another tool. Like that
You can use it to turn around, transform, move shape by this tool.
Problem fixed ! thank you so much !!
Hi there. I was having the same problem until I stumbled across a (new?) option in the Attributes palette.
There are two little boxes, one with a dot in the middle. Select that one, and all your problems will be solved. Hopefully.
Attributes (show all) and select the box with the dot in it - fixed it for me - THANK YOU!
You are very welcome!
Perfect. Thank you!
Is there a way to set Show Center by default in preferences or else? it is really annoying to have to go each time in the attributes panel to check the show center box
I am struggling with the same problem. This really needs fixing by Adobe ASAP
If I draw a shape then change to a guide you don't have a centre point showing and no way to do this even with attributes.
To have to change attributes every time just adds time to projects.
I really don't understand why this has changed in the latest software CC2019
Adobe please help us!!
Same issue. Center-point is missing from guide objects (boxes and circles turned into guides). I've done everything recommended and the center-point still won't show. Object-guides used to show the center-points now they don't.
It is a problem with the GPU/CPU preview mode. If you're using GPU visualization it won't show the objects centers when in outline view, if you switch to CPU, it will. So go to Menu/View/View using CPU (Cmd+E or Ctrl+E) and you will see those center symbols come alive.
Go to the View panel, enable Show Bounding Box.
